Comments On The Protocols

“Thank you, Graeme, for all your hard work behind the scenes creating a safe and supportive environment to enable our Teacher Training Course to return to the studio for the first weekend together since February.  I had a certain amount of trepidation returning to the studio after months of lockdown, especially as the restrictions had recently been increased in Glasgow.  The weekend went by without a hitch due to the fact that all Government regulations had been followed, protocols and procedures were in place which made it easier as a group leader to ensure these were followed for the safety of all.”

“Being back in the centre was a positive experience made so by the guidelines put in place and how the room had been laid out and spaced out with mats.  Everything was clean and having the spray and hand gel to hand was very helpful too.  Also having the guidelines written and sent ahead of time was also useful.  All of this eased any worries I had about being in a social setting with a big group of people.  Others also demonstrated respect in regards to personal space too.”

“I felt absolutely at ease with the processes in place at ITM this weekend and wasn’t in the least concerned for my health and safety because of this.  I am very used to the arrangement of the mats in the way they were as this is how my regular class is laid out so I didn’t feel this layout detracted from my usual YTT experience.  One small thing might be to remind people via a notice on the loo door regarding social distancing in the loo as it isn’t a very big space!! “  [Note: this has been done.]

“I felt uncertain before the weekend how it’d all work out.  As the first day progressed my feelings of uncertainty lowered.  The next day was much better.  It was important to see everybody adhering to the rules and thank you Cathy for keeping an eye on everybody who entered the room to remind of disinfecting our hands.”

“We all felt really safe with all the protocols in place and so clear what we needed to do.  Thank you for making the process back to classes run so smoothly.”
